Students at our makeup school are taught by working makeup professionals using the latest products, brushes and tools.

The LSMM provides the best support and mentoring. In addition, this support will continue after your graduation and into your career as a makeup artist. Furthermore, we actively encourage engagement between tutors, alumni & students throughout your studies.

Our Diploma makeup courses include access to life coaching sessions and career development. Focus is also on brand training, social media strategy and business skills.

We take your professional suitability and future employment very seriously. The final week of our Diploma courses are dedicated to producing your own professional portfolios under the guidance of Rebecca Wordingham.  Graduates of The LSMM will have a better start in the industry due to their professional understanding, makeup portfolio and experiences that allows them to explore the industry quicker and more effectively.

The Kit

The LSMM provides each student with a working professional makeup kit at the start of their course. This kit contains carefully selected, industry approved products that will give our students the best start to their career. Working with high profile brands such as MAC, BareMinerals, Kosas and Diva Prostyling also offers our students industry contacts from the very beginning of their career. The value of each student kit is over £3000.
